    Got to have Danger mouse in there :) 
    last time that happened to me I thought to myself “oh god, what have I said now!” Turns out it was people replying to my question of how many Taco Bells were in the UK.

    But the question remains, were they two finger or four finger? Or maybe Chunkies? :eek:

    Excellent!

    Just needs one of the weapon effects positioned to look like it's erupting from the back of his head :D

    I'd buy it!!

    Ah, cool. Yeah, Galvatrons have been a pretty bad example too. It's a shame as that g1 toy shock/cyc colour is soooo nice.

    Oh jeez - good luck. Fingers crossed for you.

    TELEBUGS!


    Penny Crayon for the Green Lantern slot?


    Turns out Fantastic Max was a US/UK Co-production?! The things you learn down the nostalgia rabbit hole!


    Alan Moore could have a field day with that League, shame he doesn't watch telly!

    See, now I'm thinking about a general 80's and 90's cartoon ensemble, with Bravestar and Captain Planet as the odd couple.

    These sorts of things get weird fast...

    You're also forgetting Danger Mouse, hell he lives in a red post box! So he's be Captain UK, not sure how Postman Pat or Bob the Builder might fit into the line up. Maybe as Agents of hmmm will have to think of a British version for Shield....

    Okay, prediction time: box set with SS Scourge, Kingdom Cyclonus (dark purple deco), Fracas, Nightstick and some blast effects. Question is, does it go in Selects, or some sleezy exclusive that no-one can get?

    Certainly any UK kids TV team up would include the Poddington peas and wizbit?

    I wish I could kiss that big beautiful brain of yours sometimes.

    Appendages crossed for you captain Hex

    Not forgotten, omitted due to logical reasoning, QED...
    There's no evidence that the torch has any abilities outside of Cuckoo Land besides it's initial portal access, and as he always returns to his bedroom no evidence of even useful teleportation ability in the Real World.
    Enemy of Danger Mouse, who's already been mentioned/drafted.
    No intrinsic abilities of his own, and/or possibly already being groomed and seduced by the extradimensional horror known only as 'The Shopkeeper' (possibly an alternate avatar form of Slaanesh, or another deity of ruinous power whose remit is pleasure & excess?).
    Bagpuss is just an old, worn, cloth cat, baggy, and a bit loose at the seams, despite Emily's love, and we all know Gabriel the Toad would be Nick Fury (Professor Yaffle would think it was his job but it would be Gabriel). :p 

    Similarly I left out Chorlton the Happiness Dragon, as despite him clearly being "from elsewhere" he seems pretty settled into Wheelie World! :lol

    I’m pretty certain SuperTed appeared as a toy in an episode of Fantastic Max.

    Highly likely true, they are linked by the same S4C-connected animation house being creator/co-creator of both series!

    Does Morph count?

    He could shape shift and had an army of very small minions shaped like blobs of plasticine.
